Re: Closing Aged Accounts.. Yes It Is Ok
It is true that you should try to hang onto your oldest account as long as possible, and this is repeated many, many places.

But it should have continued to report for ten years after closing. If it vanished immediately, something's wrong.

And Experian doesn't understand FICO scoring.

FICO's: EQ 781 - TU 793 - EX 779 (from PSECU) - Done credit hunting; having fun with credit gardening. - EQ 590 on 5/14/2007
